New York City’s own noise rockers Human Impact have dropped their new stand-alone single/video, “Contact,” which was written and recorded shortly before the outbreak of COVID-19.
“We’d like to write songs about humankind living in harmony and balance with the world, about governments and corporations being of and for the people,” says the band in a statement. “But those songs would be narcotic lullabies spitting in the wind of what’s real. We wish this song were wrong. ‘Contact’ was written, recorded and mixed just before the global COVID-19 pandemic hit. Originally written as a response to a feeling of international vulnerability to the spread of disease via air travel, the song’s lyrics proved to be an uneasy and uncanny prediction, foreshadowing our current quarantined reality.”
The band have stated that proceeds from the song will be donated to the NYC COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund.
